The community service workers are treated awful by the Must Ministries employees. I have never been treated so poorly by anyone in my life. I have always enjoyed giving my time back to the community but after the numerous insults and unkind comments, I have no desire to give my time to this organization. The Must Ministries have a great opportunity to help teach people about the value of giving back to the community. Unfortunately, this organization does everything it can to make people never want to give back to the community.

Also, the people that are staying there (homeless etc..) verbally assaulted the employees after being treated poorly by them. It is obvious that the employees don't want to be there and are taking it out on anyone they come across. This organization gives out freebies but is poorly run by angry, bitter employees. Would never give them money or food.

For 7 yrs I have volunteered at MUST Cherokee and am so impressed with the work of feeding, clothing the needy as well as many other projects. What is unique is the support of churches, schools and organizations to this wonderful group of volunteers. At MUST Cherokee, all Community Services Workers (as ordered by court) are treated with kindness and respect. In fact, a good number of them come back to us as volunteers.

MUST does so much for the community and the people who live in it. I've been a supporter for years and a volunteer for many years as well. It's a great organization to support - has rec'd a 5 star charity rating two years in a row (spends donations wisely). They help low-income people, the homeless, and others - in many ways.

Court directed juveniles working public service are treated very badly by the paid staff. They are obligated to serve per the judge's orders and cannot quit until their hours are served.
